What's up guys, very recently I blew my transmission in my MKIII.
Sooo, I'm taking the time I have now to take this thing apart (somewhat) and install the part's I've had stacked against my bedroom wall for months now.
The canvas is an already "slammed" Trek on Miro STP-1 Wheels. All work thus far been done by myself.

This is how the primary setup is going to be.
• Garrett GT2541r Dual BB Core Oil & Water-cooled Turbo GT2876r
• Frozenboost 600hp Air/Water Intercooler Kit (No I'm not trying to push that number)
• 2.5" Polished Charge Piping
• MK4 2.0 Manifolds and corresponding parts.
• C2 Stage 2 Software
• Bosch 42lb Green Top Injectors
When the build is over I'm swapping out the blown 020 Tranny for an 02A to give me peace of mind and for better gearing.
Also, I will only be running 8 PSI when the build is "completed" after I get the tranny paid for I'm buying a set of JE pistons and IE rods to lower my compression so I can raise the boost. Just so your minds don't wander..
Day One of Build, Deconstruction Time.
Sittin' down takin' a break before I get at it, garage view.
Stock MK3 Upper Manifold Off
Stock Fuel Rail pulled off, probably going to be re-used.
Myself taking the time to pose for a 10 sec timer pic,
MK3 Lower Intake manifold, so damn restrictive.
Shot of the head & cam. Wish I had the money to go to a more aggressive cam but that will come later.
Pile of USELESS junk.
End of Day 1,
Here's a peak what the bay is going to be looking like , took about 10-15 hours polishing the AEG Upper Intake.
Here's the baby of a Turbo I'll be workin' with.
Stay tuned men, I'm 19 years old and I'll be doing ALL of the work myself. This is my first turbo build and first time working with a VW's engine. I've got a pretty solid background on what I'm doing. Sub if you support boosted ABA's
